no for some strange reason no mater what video i try to play in media center it craps out with an error - so far i have tested avi (xvid) and mkv(x264) and it complains that it cant open the files, yet media player on its own can, now i have ffdshow installed, could it be because its in x86 folder that its kicking up, or just vista being a tit

it doesn't use media player as the backend. If it did it'd use your codecs :)

Media player is 32 bit so that it can use existing codecs.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
